Google Chat Now Allows Voice and Video Calls

Google, a blog post announced that Google Chat in Gmail will now allow one-to-one voice and video calls. The company has brought the update to Android and iOS platforms, especially for mobile users. The feature is currently limited to one-on-one chats only. This means that only individual users on the chat list can make audio and video calls. Users will also be able to see missed calls and ongoing call details from Gmail’s chat list.

Users who receive the new update offered by Google begin to see phone and video icons in the upper right of the Gmail chat list. Users who see these icons can optionally tap any of these icons to make a direct audio or video call. Gmail notifies users of an ongoing call with a blue banner appearing at the top of the screen. This blue header contains the name of the person on the call, along with the duration of the call. In addition, missed calls are also shown with a red phone or video icon in the call and chat list.

The new search experience is available to Google Workspace, G Suite Basic and Business customers, as well as all users with personal Google accounts. However, users must be using the latest version of Gmail to make or receive calls. “We hope this will make it easier to connect with colleagues in the hybrid work world as some teams return to duty and others stay home,” Google wrote in its blog post. He talked about the feature.

Finally, let’s mention that the search update in Gmail came in the middle of Google’s transition from Hangouts to Google Chat.
